New Holland's T5 Auto Command tractor range has won ‘Machine of the Year 2019’ in the medium tractor category at the recent SIMA 2019 show.

Winners are chosen by journalists from European farming publications in partnership with DLV. The award was first made in 1997 and is given every two years at Agritechnica in Germany and the SIMA exhibition in France.

The T5 Auto Command offers best-in-class cab space and ultimate comfort, resulting in “premium driving pleasure combined with industry leading performance and power ratings”.

The multi award-winning Auto Command continuously variable transmission delivers the versatile T5’s all-round performance in jobs where exact speeds are critical, making these tractors ideal for loader work. 

The tractors have the ideal features for increased versatility in grassland operations, arable farming, transport, cultivation and municipal work.

“These awards recognise New Holland’s approach to innovative technology that... improves farmers’ efficiency and helps operators work more productively, safely and comfortably,” said Carlo Lambro, brand president of New Holland Agriculture. 

“They are testament to the expertise and grounded approach to innovation of New Holland’s team in the Modena, Zedelgem and Jesi plants.”
